Although around 3,000 species of nudibranchs are known worldwide, only nearly 100 species are reported from Brazil. From Bahia State, northeastern Brazil, only seven species are listed. The current article provides four new records of nudibranchs from this region: Geitodoris pusae (Marcus 1955); Felimida paulomarcioi (Domínguez, García and Troncoso 2006); Felimida binza (Marcus and Marcus 1963) and Cadlina rumia Marcus 1955. The new records presented herein fill part of a historical gap in the species geographic distribution, and increase to eleven the number of nudibranch species known from Bahia.
